Flier for a White Supremacist Group Spotted in Arlington County

Flier for a White Supremacist Group Spotted in Clarendon

by Alex Koma May 21, 2018 at 5:00 pm

Shana Silver says she was walking along Washington Blvd in Clarendon today (Monday) when she made a disturbing discovery: a flier advertising an Alexandria-based white supremacist group.

She snapped a photo of the slip of paper, distributed by the group Identity Evropa, before promptly taking it down. The flier shows several tattooed white men with the text “Our Generation, Our Future, Our Last Chance” overlaid over the image, and Silver says it was posted near the pedestrian crossing to reach Northside Social.

“I know what neo-Nazi, white supremacist propaganda is when I see it,” Silver told ARLnow. “As a Jewish woman, I can’t let that go.”

One likes to think their community is a safe & inclusive home for all. Then they find Neo-Nazi recruitment signs posted.

@ArlingtonVaPD @ARLnowDOTcom , found this on the corner of Washington Blvd. and Wilson this afternoon (I’ve already trashed it) and I’m sure there are more.

1. Arlington History

The National Socialist Party used to be headquartered in Arlington. Their headquarters was in a building just down the street from where this flyer was found. The front of the building flew an American and Nazi flag and a swatstika was carved in the concrete above the door.
In the late 60s thier leader George Lincoln Rockwell was assassinated as he got out of his car at a strip mall that was close to his home. He was killed by one of his own members. To this day a wreath is placed on the spot where he fell and a Swatstika is spray painted on the parking lot. Back in the early seventies there was a big blow up over the Nazis marching in the annual Memorial Day parade. Lots of police the day they marched but no trouble. They organization eventually moved to Illinois.

I grew up in Arlington and all of this happened when I was a kid. As a college student I took a criminal justice class that was taught by the Arlington County Police Officer who caught the guy who shot Rockwell.
